Nick’s Story

Nick’s brother Jon was a junior in high school with a passion for basketball that he shared with his four older brothers when he lost his life to meningococcal disease. On August 1, 2005 Jon was feeling a little under the weather and was unable to play in his basketball game that evening. Later that night, Jon developed a fever and began vomiting. By the following morning, Jon’s symptoms had become so severe that his parents had him rushed to the hospital. Doctors suspected Jon had contracted bacterial meningitis and immediately gave him antibiotics. Unfortunately, Jon succumbed to the disease less than two hours later. Today Nick works with high school athletes as a director, as an advocate for meningococcal disease awareness.
